“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” ...John 16:33
Everything is in a panic! Everybody wants a piece of you, there’s far too much to do, and there are never enough hours in the day to do them. Your head is cluttered with all kinds of junk, and your heart is about ready to break. So where his He when you need Him? Is He asleep?
You feel like those disciples on the Sea of Galilee when the storm came up, and the winds and the waves rocked their boat. Your cry is the same as theirs: “Somebody go get Jesus! He’s asleep in the back of the boat, and we’re about to drown out here!”
The storms of your life have all but sunk your ship. You can’t take much more. You need Jesus, your Prince of Peace. You need Him, your Father who never slumbers, never sleeps. You need the peace that comes only by the Spirit of the Living God. Ask the Lord to speak to your storm. Just say the words, “Peace, be still.” Let yourself find in Him a still and quiet place - a place where the gentle breezes of His love blow softly across your face, a place where just one touch from Him takes all your tensions away, a place where you can rest your head upon His breast, hear His holy heartbeat - and be at peace.
